It’s that time of the year again, all the rice folks hunker down for Christmas break and then hit the roads running to winter rice meetings across the state.  The first week of January will be busy, followed by a smattering of meetings throughout the month.  This post provides information for the meeting plans that have been finalized to date.  Please contact your local county agent for information on meetings in your region. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  I look forward to seeing you in 2011.
